What is Windows Expert Console

Windows Expert Console is a rogue antivirus program created by cybercriminals and distributed using deceptive methods such as fake downloads. It is designed to trick users into believing their computer is infected with numerous threats, and then attempts to sell a “full version” of the software to remove these non-existent threats. Once installed, the Windows Expert Console modifies operating system registry entries and configures itself to start automatically. It also disables the Task Manager and blocks the execution of installed programs. In some cases, it may even block the entire desktop. The software then performs a fake security scan and reports numerous non-existent infections. If a user attempts to remove these supposed infections, the program states that they first need to purchase a license. This is a deceptive tactic designed to trick users into paying for a non-functional and unnecessary service. To prevent infection, it’s crucial to maintain up-to-date antivirus software and be cautious when downloading files or opening email attachments, especially from unknown sources. Regularly updating your operating system and other software can also help to patch vulnerabilities that could be exploited by such rogue software.
